Mechanical Mirrors:
The 4 mechanical mirrors are made of various materials but share the same behavior and interaction; any person standing in front of one of these pieces is instantly reflected on its surface. The mechanical mirrors all have video cameras, motors and computers on board and produce a soothing sound as the viewer interacts with them.

Wooden Mirror - 1999
830 square pieces of wood, 830 servo motors, control electronics, video camera, computer, wood frame.
Size - W 67” x H 80” x D 10” (170cm , 203cm, 25cm).
Built in 1999, this is the first mechanical mirror I built. This piece explores the line between digital and physical, using a warm and natural material such as wood to portray the abstract notion of digital pixels.

it was an restful sound :D
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

That's treemendous!
Seriously... It's a rare thing for me to appreciate a piece of so-called 'modern art'.

They could have suppressed the noise almost completely by encasing the piece in glass (or perspex [lucite]) but that would have changed the aesthetic they were aiming for no doubt.
